Solder will receive a four-year, $60 million contract, with a guarantee of about $35 million, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Thatís got to put him at or near the top for OL, right?
To answer your question, he is the highest paid offensive lineman ever.
Can't blame NE for balking here. All 4 guys who have left, have been overpaid. Tough to see all these guys gone.
We have 22 mil in cap now, and 4 picks in the first 3 rounds. Also worth noting we are likely to pick up 4 comp picks in next years draft including 3rd round comp picks for Solder and Butler.
We have a gaping need at tackle. We are desperate for linebacker and cornerback depth and need a QB prospect.
I'd like to take a tackle in the first. Maybe even use a future pick to move up and get one. Then address CB and QB in the rest of the draft.
Sign some linebackers in free agency and pray Brady still has another year or 2 of MVP caliber play.
